With a quarter of a million students enrolling in MBAs programmes each year, these courses are in high demand. But are they worth it?
London, England (PRWEB UK) 2 January 2015
London School of Marketing, a leading institution offering accredited marketing and business qualifications in the heart of London, has released an article measuring the value of an MBA in today's competitive market by addressing four arguments in favour of work experience.
"With a quarter of a million students enrolling in MBAs programmes each year, these courses are in high demand. But are they worth it? While the majority of board members in the Fortune 500 companies are MBA graduates, others promote work experience as the key to success," the article states. "To help our students weigh up the options available to them, we consider the options."
Complementing a comprehensive range of blogs, whitepapers and case studies designed to support students pursuing sought-after marketing, business and academic designations, this article quotes industry experts and relevant research studies to make a compelling argument in favour of MBAs when compared to work experience alone.
"It is true that employers prefer work experience when selecting candidates for higher ranking jobs," the article continues. "But an employee will find it increasingly difficult to progress up the career ladder without having an MBA, irrespective of their work experience."
